ADOPTED! Gentle Jezebel, Watercolor Hued Dilute Calico Kitty, Adoptable in Atlanta

Gentle Jezebel is what is known as a dilute calico because of the delicate, watercolor peach and gray shades (with the occasional spot of gold) of her cloud-soft fur.  She has luxuriously long white whiskers, fluffy soft-as-silk fur, and glowing green-gold eyes that highlight the gold portions of her fur. When she sits still, in just the right light, Jezebel is a living piece of feline art. Jezebel’s foster mother rescued gentle Jezebel from an apartment complex on Buford Highway in Atlanta. We don’t know a lot about Jezzie’s early life – she is a year and a half old now – but think that at one time she had a family.  When she was found, poor Jezebel was struggling to swallow because of a kitten-sized flea collar she had long outgrown…but of course could not remove without human help.  Did she wander off from her family?  Was she abandoned?  We’ll never know the answers, but are thankful she showed up one night when our SNAP volunteer was feeding other cats.  When Jezebel begged for food, our volunteer took in her too-small collar, matted fur, and incredibly sweet disposition and took her home without hesitation. Jezebel’s foster mother looks forward to her daily chats with her pretty feline visitor.  Jezzie knows how to make her wishes known, especially when she wants wet food!  She tolerates other cats, but Jezebel would probably prefer being the only feline in a household.  Her foster mother explains that Jezebel is a self-sufficient young cat, and maneuvers in her current foster environment very well, which is probably a by-product of living on the street.  Jezebel can get along with anyone. Jezebel loves the company of humans, and escorts her foster mother from room to room. We believe that because of Jezebel’s sweet temperament and endless patience she would do well with children, too. Jezzie’s favorite snooze spots include napping with her foster mother in a human bed, or curled up in her cat tree.  For such a beauty, she is low maintenance except when she begs for tummy rubs! Jezebel is ready to bring her living art to your home gallery.  This scrumptious girl is fully vetted, spayed, up to date on all shots and tests, and ready to meet her forever family.  As an adult, her adoption fee is only $25, too.  Jezebel’s foster mother would love to arrange a meeting between you and Jezebel, so drop us a note to set up a first date.  You can also pre-apply to adopt Jezebel...

Adopted! Madeline: Move Over Bette Midler, Atlanta Adoptable Diva wants the Stage

Adopted! Madeline: Move Over Bette Midler, Atlanta Adoptable Diva wants the Stage

If striking calico Madeline were a two-legged rather than a four-legged entertainer, she would be Bette Midler. Or perhaps, for the generation of people who remember, Ethel Merman.  Like these iconic women, when Madeline is in your line of vision, she fills up the room with her personality and won’t let you look anywhere else! That’s one reason it was really hard to get pictures of her when we visited a few weeks ago.  Madeline practically vibrates with energy when a person is near her, she is so anxious for hugs and attention.  We really do mean hugs, too: she literally wraps her paws around her neck and purrs contentedly.  A consummate professional, two-year old Madeline practically tap-dances to gain human applause, and jumps from table to ledge and back again to show you her best angle. Although Madeline sports typical calico colors, the placement of them is striking.  Her base, predominant color (including her face) is a mottled black. A precise and well-defined orange line of fur spills from her eyebrows to the tip of her nose.  She has a white collar, and four pretty white feet; one ear is tipped in the same calico orange hue.  With deep green eyes, and long white whiskers and eyebrows, she is a sight to behold! And speaking of sight, you should know that when Madeline was a kitten, she caught a horrible eye infection.  Although we were able to save the eye, it is visibly cloudy.  Madeline still has vision in the eye, though, and does not require any special medication or ongoing treatments.  Madeline knows she’s much more than just another pretty face, so her eye doesn’t bother her at all. Madeline gets along well with other cats, as long as everyone is on board that she is the diva and gets first dibs on attention.  Madeline would be just fine as a solo act, too. Like all SNAP animals, Madeline is fully vetted, spayed, up to date on all shots and tests, and microchipped. To see her next performance, drop us a note and we’ll arrange a visit so that you can get to know each other.  Please come prepared to toss roses. You can also pre-apply to adopt Madeline online. Madeline can’t wait to take her performance on the road to your house, and has already suggested that a feathered boa would make a great housewarming gift....
